Happy Halloween! We hope everyone has a scary good night while staying safe! Today we’re happy to announce the winners of October Garden of the Month (GOTM) and Player of the Month (POTM), as well as announce the criteria for November POTM! Ready to discover what themed gardens claimed the October title?
It’s time to recognize some outstanding Virtual Garden builders who helped us get in the holiday spirit! Remember that all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award the Abstatt Tomcat (aka Munzee Tomcat), designed by Chandabelle, and the Cedar Rapids Pumpkin Garden, designed by Rodrico101, as our winning October GOTM! The gardens will appear as follows:
Abstatt Tomcat by Chandabelle in Abstatt Germany
Halloween has black cats on our mind, but this Munzee Tomcat offers plenty of color for spooky season. The garden is inspired by the Rälling cat, which is the town mascot of Abstatt, Germany. You can find statues of the cat all over Abstatt, but especially in Bürger Park. You can find some real world pictures of the cat below!
Cedar Rapids Pumpkin Garden by Rodrico101 in Iowa
No spooky season would be complete without a pumpkin! This jack-o-lantern face holds all the menace of spooky fun, so we couldn’t resist awarding it as October GOTM! Plus, this garden is extra special, because player Rodrico101 also created a Frankenstein Garden right next to his pumpkin! Though only the pumpkin won GOTM, you can check both gardens out below:
And speaking of honorable mentions, there is one more garden we would like to recognize! Like the Frankenstein Garden, it wasn’t 100% filled at the time of nomination, and therefore is not legible for GOTM, but we loved the Jack-O’-Lantern Garden too much not to give it some attention! You can assist father and son garden designing team SEvans and LiamCEvans by clicking the link to the spreadsheet to help them finish deploying in their spooktacular garden! The design appears as follows:
All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:
